DR. KILDARE Dr. Kildare was produced for syndication in 1949 at WMGM , New York. It was based on the popular Dr. Kildare movies of the late 1930's and early 1940's, and brought to the microphone the stars of that series, Lew Ayres and Lionel Barrymore . Ayres played the young, idealistic Dr. James Kildare; Barrymore, ever in character, was the crusty, loveable diagnostician, Dr. Leonard Gillespie. The men worked at Blair General Hospital, "one of the great citadels of American medicine --...

Some Kind Of Satisfaction - File Fill That Hammer Guy Ted de Corsia - 1954 An episode of That Hammer Guy with Ted de Corsia, not found in the other collections on Internet Archive.  The sound quality is a bit rough (as is the lead character), roughly on par with the other episodes available on IA.  The story, characters, and acting are all very satisfying; the story is complete, but the show's wrap-up is missing. This series debuted on the Mutual network on January 6 1953 and ran until...

X MINUS ONE X Minus One aired on NBC from 24 April 55 until 9 January 58 for a total of 124 episodes with one pilot or audition story. There was a revival of the series in 1973 when radio was attempting to bring back radio drama and it lasted until 1975. The show occupied numerous time slots through out its run in the 50's and thus was never able to generate a large following. X Minus One was an extension of Dimension X which aired on NBC from 1950-51. The first fifteen scripts used for X Minus...

(02 Episodes: #001, #002) "Joe Palooka," comic-strip character, was a short-lived radio situation-comedy; this is more than likely the reason why there are only 2 episodes available online. Yes, I realize there is a #007 which shows up at many web addresses, however at a closer listen, one will discover that the #007 is actually only a really poor sound quality version of #002. For those of you out there old enough to recall, Joe Palooka was a comic-strip character, a small...

"That Hammer Guy" made its radio debut in 1953, at the height of Mickey Spillane's tough, trigger-happy, skirt-chasing detective Mike Hammer's popularity. Broadcast on the Mutual Broadcasting System from January 6, 1953 until October 5, 1953, "That Hammer Guy" didn't feature any scripts by Spillane, but writer Ed Adamson did manage to capture Spillane's gritty world and colorful language. The show originally starred Larry Haines as Mike Hammer. He was later replaced by Ted...

Our Miss Brooks was a hit on radio from the outset; within eight months of its launch as a regular series, the show landed several honors, including four for Eve Arden, who won polls in four individual publications of the time. Arden had actually been the third choice to play the title role. Harry Ackerman, at the time CBS's West Coast director of programming, wanted Shirley Booth for the part, but as he told historian Gerald Nachman many years later, he realized Booth was too focused on the...

Adventures By Morse – 1944 The title of this series refers to the writer and director of the show, Carlton E. Morse. There were 52 episodes of this thirty-minute adventure series featuring a San Francisco detective, Captain Bart Friday, and his sidekick, Skip Turner. Captain Friday and Skip roamed the world together seeking danger and solving mysteries. The stories told bordered on the supernatural, though there was usually a rational explanation for the superbly written terror-chillers.

THE BIG SHOW In 1950, the advent of television was not only causing concern in the film industry but radio was beginning to feel the effect as well. In short, audiences were dwindling. To combat the problem, NBC spent lots of money to produce The Big Show , a 90 minute radio program which would feature famous guests performing skits, songs, and comedic routines. Tallulah Bankhead was asked to host the show. She had guested in various radio programs in the past but had never done anything on an...

DRAGNET Dragnet , the brainchild of Jack Webb, may very well be the most well-remembered, and the best, radio police drama series. From September, 1949 through February 1957, Dragnet 's 30 minute shows, broadcast on NBC, brought to radio true police stories in a low-key, documentary style. The origins of Dragnet can be traced to a semi-documentary film, "He Walked by Night" from 1948, in which Webb had a small role. Both employed the same Los Angeles Police Department technical...

THE WEIRD CIRCLE The Weird Circle was a 30-minute, syndicated, supernatural/fantasy series that ran from 1943 through 1945. There were 78 episodes produced. The show's strength was stories from famous writers of the two genres, including Robert Lewis Stevenson, Victor Hugo, Edgar Alan Poe and even Charles Dickens. Most all of the stories came from the Victorian era or older. The show obviously had a low production budget: though the show was aided by selections from famous book authors, it...

ACADEMY AWARD  Academy Award Theater began its full 39 week season with a high note -- with Bette Davis in her Oscar winning role in Jezebel. By looking at the list of actors who appeared during the series, you can see that this series ranked up there with the Lux Radio Theater in its range of movies chosen to be dramatized as well as the actors involved. Gene Hersholt, veteran radio and movie star, spoke as president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences during the first show...

INNER SANCTUM MYSTERIES The anthology series featured stories of mystery, terror and suspense, and its tongue-in-cheek introductions were in sharp contrast to shows like Suspense and The Whistler . The early 1940s programs opened with Raymond Edward Johnson introducing himself as, "Your host, Raymond," in a mocking sardonic voice. A spooky melodramatic organ score (played by Lew White) punctuated Raymond's many morbid jokes and playful puns. Raymond's closing was an elongated...

(111 Episodes) "Father Knows Best," with Robert Young as father, is an Old Time Radio Situation Comedy, broadcast during the early to mid 1950s. Depicting the 'typical American' household, the radio show had a strong following and it went on very (I might add) successfully to television, becoming as popular as a 1950s and 1960s B/W TV sitcom, as was its radio counterpart! (NBC & CBS) Primarily sponsored by Maxwell House Coffee.... "Your father thinks it's the best (coffee),...

TALES OF THE DIAMOND K There is not much information available about Tales of the Diamond K, despite extensive research done both on the internet and in the newspaper logs. It was a 15 minute syndicated show aimed at a juvenile audience and appeared to have been aired on a daily basis, during the mid 50's. Some sources indicate that as many as a thousand shows were produced, but there are only 39 known to be in existence. The series starred Ken Maynard as the host who introduced and told a...

MOLLE MYSTERY THEATER NBC's Mystery Theatre began airing with much fanfare on September 7, 1943. The series promised stories from the greatest classical and contemporary mystery authors -- and production values to match. And it kept its promise. It was aided from the outset by the addition of an 'annotator'-- as it was described in the 1940s --named Geoffrey Barnes. The annotator served in the role of expositor, filling in on the plot development as necessary and providing a back-story when...

RICHARD DIAMOND, PRIVATE DETECTIVE In 1945, Dick Powell portrayed Phillip Marlowe in the movie "Murder My Sweet" based on Raymond Chandler's novel "Farewell My Lovely". This was a radical departure in character for Mr. Powell from a Hollywood song and dance man to a hard-boiled detective. On June 11,1945, the Lux Radio Theater brought "Murder My Sweet" to radio, again with Dick Powell in the lead. These two performances prompted his selection for the part of...

Considered somewhat inferior version of "The Shadow", this show was written by Walter Gibson (Maxwell Grant) and starred James Monks as Jim Brandon, and James LoCurto (who, along with Frank Readick voiced "The Shadow" before the advent of Orson Welles and Lamont Cranston).
